Although it's technically the regular season, TBS will throw out the first pitch on Major League Baseball's playoffs tomorrow in Minnesota.
TBS will cover the Tuesday, Oct. 6 tie-breaking, play-in game for the American League Central division crown between the Minnesota Twins and Detroit Tigers at 5 p.m. (ET). Chip Caray (play-by-play), Ron Darling (analyst), and Sager (reporter) will call the action, with the winner facing the New York Yankees in one of the ALDS series.
The network's Division Series Coverage series presented by BlackBerry begins with a tripleheader on Wednesday Oct. 7 at 2:30 p.m. with the National League East and defending world champion Philadelphia Phillies hosting the Wild Card winner Colorado Rockies. Brian Anderson (play-by-play), Joe Simpson (analyst) and David Aldridge (reporter) will call the action.
If the AL East division champion Yankees choose to begin their series on Wednesday, they will host the Tigers/Twins winner at 6 p.m., with the aforementioned announce team in tow.
Should the Yankees choose to begin their series Thursday, the second game of Wednesday's tripleheader will be the AL West division champion Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim hosting the Wild Card winner Boston Red Sox at 6 p.m. Don Orsillo (play-by-play) will call the Angels-Bosox battle, alongside Buck Martinez (analyst) with Tom Verducci reporting. The nightcap of October 7 tripleheader pits the NL Central division champion St. Louis Cardinals traveling to the NL West winner Los Angeles Dodgers at 9:30 p.m. (ET). Dick Stockton will handle play-by-play duties, with Bob Brenly serving as game analyst and Marc Fein reporting.
TBS has another tripleheader on tap Oct. 8. The second game of Phillies-Rockies gets underway at 2:30 p.m. If the Yankees choose to begin their series on Wednesday, Thursday's second game will feature the second contest between Cardinals-Dodgers at 6 p.m.
The final game of the night will either spotlight the Angels-Red Sox in their first game of their ALDS series at 9:30 p.m., or, if the Yankees choose to begin their LDS on Thursday, they will host the Tigers-Twins winner in the first game of that series at 6 p.m. Under that scenario, the Dodgers would host the Cardinals in game 2 of their series at 9:30 p.m.
TBS has complete coverage of the four division series, with sister service TNT providing a carriage assist if the games overextend their scheduled windows.
This year, TBS will also televise the NL Championship Series, with Fox joining the postseason party with coverage of the AL Championship Series. The broadcast network will also present the World Series.
